I have a new fibre broadband connection, and need to check

Resolved Question:

I have a new fibre broadband connection, and need to check it's download/upload speed. I need to connect to the router directly with a Win7 Pro laptop. The laptop currently accesses via WiFi to the router.
Having made the physical connection to the router, how do I configure the connection to exclude WiFi and only access the router/broadband directly?
Thank you.

Hi there and welcome

To do this, click start, type in

ncpa.cpl

Press enter

Right click the wireless connection and select Disable.

Then it will force internet over the cable until you enable it again
